Yellow Leaves Due to Freeze

I have four sagos and they were doing very well, but this year we had a bad freeze and all of the leaves have turned yellow. What should I do as far as pruning?

I would wait until spring is fully here to cut back the plant to help protect the new growth, just in case another freeze occurs. You will need to remove the yellow and brown fronds in the spring, but only those, as they will not come back. Do not remove green fronds.

Freeze Damaged Sago

I do not know if  ‘fronds’ and ‘leaves’ are the same, and I do not know what ‘fruit’ and ‘flower stalk’ refers to. I will appreciate your answers and continue to enjoy your website information.

Fronds and leaves are the same. When it comes to fruit and flower stalk in reference to sago palm, you do not need to worry about that. Sago palms rarely flower or fruit.

White Stuff on Underside of Palm Leaves

My sago palm has white, soft looking stuff on the underside of its leaves. It almost has the look of snow. How do I get rid of this?

Sago

My Sago leaves froze this winter. I believe that the main part of the plant is ok. My question is, do I cut off the part of the leaves that froze?

Sago palms do not deal well with lost fronds, but they have been known to recover fine.

How to Prune Sago Palms

I have numerous sago palms planted in large potting containers around my home. We also have many of the sago palms planted in the yard landscape. I live close to the US Gulf Coast, but we recently had ice and a freeze that caused the palm branches to turn brown. What do I need to do to revive the green color back into the plants? Do all of the brown branches need to be removed?
